Incentives for Textile Sectors

The Foreign Trade Policy-2009-14 incorporates several measures of incentives for the export sector including the textiles and clothing viz. Inclusion of 26 new international markets under the Focus Market Scheme; enhancement of incentives available under Focus Market Scheme and Focus Product Scheme; broad basing the coverage of Market Linked Focus Product Scheme for textile products and extension of Market Linked Focus Product Scheme benefits for exports of textiles and clothing products to additional new markets. The Duty Entitlement Passbook Scheme has also since been extended from 30.6.2011 to 30.9.2011.

The Excise Duty on branded readymade garments was converted from optional levy into a mandatory levy at unified rate of 10 per cent, is part of the Union Budget announcements on 28.2.2011. However, Government introduced certain modification on 24.03.2011 in the tariff structure for branded readymade garments and made-up articles of textiles whereby the tariff value notified under section 3 of the Central Excise Act for these items i.e. goods falling under Chapters 61, 62 and 63 (heading Nos. 63.01 to 63.08) has been reduced from 60% to 45% of the Retail Sale Price. The excise duty is to be paid on a reduced value that is 45% of the Retail Sale Price of the garment. The effective rate of duty is therefore, only 4.5% of the Retail Sale Price.

This information was given by Smt. Panabaaka Lakshmi, Minister of State for Textiles, in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
